Lady Ga Ga holds the #1 spot for the 3rd week in a row with "Alejandro".

Jaron and The Long Road to Love move into the top 5 with "Pray For You". The track enters at #5 moving up 1 point. The song is not about religion! The song is also being played on country radio. I consider it more of a mainstream pop tune suitable for top 40 and AC radio.

Smashing Pumpkins continue their steady climb moving up 4 from #10 to #6 this week. "A Stitch in Time" is beginning to sound more and more like a top 5 and possibly even a #1 hit to me.

Three songs fell off the chart this week. Two of them were former #1's. Gone are "Hey Soul Sister" by Train and "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum. "Need You Now" topped the charts for 8 weeks this year and was on the top 20 since last November. A very long chart run for this huge, country crossover pop hit. Lady Antebellum is still on the chat with "American Honey" which peaked at #5 last week and is down 2 to #7 this week.

The third song that fell off was "Breakeven" by The Script. That song got as high as #2 and held that spot for a few weeks.

Replacing those songs are the following debuts: "We Are a Lighthouse" by The Rocketboys at #18, "Naturally" by Selena Gomez and The Scene at #19, and "Animal" by Neon Trees at #20. Neon Trees also have our new video showcase track which you can listen to and view right here.
